Cavendish Enterprise launches its own crowdfunding platform – Cavendish Crowd
Cavendish Enterprise launches ‘Cavendish Crowd’ as a response to demand from small businesses for alternative funding options other than bank loans.
Cavendish Crowd, launched by Cavendish Enterprise with Crowdfunder UK, is said to be the “first UK Enterprise Agency crowdfunding platform”.
The new initiative aims to support small businesses at a ‘start up’ stage to those looking to grow and expand.
Cavendish Enterprise is made up of six of the largest enterprise agencies across England, including the National Enterprise Network.
They work together with different organisations, across all sectors, to push for nationwide business and economic growth.
Kevin Horne, Cavendish Enterprise Chairman, said: “In our continued efforts to provide innovative support to new and growing businesses, Cavendish Enterprise is pleased to offer a dedicated crowdfunding platform for our clients.”
Nick Under hill, Managing Director Crowdfunder UK, further explains: “Crowdfunder is excited to be working on this unique partnership with Cavendish Enterprise, which is enabling a group of national business support agencies to help their clients with current and accessible alternative means of funding.
“Cavendish, with our support, are able to provide their huge client database with not just generic business advice but also support to access crowd funding through their own Cavendish platform.”
